Mayo Clinic Gastroenterology and Hepatology Board Review 4th Edition PDF
8.30 MB PDF
Gastroenterology and hepatology encompass a vast anatomical assortment of organs that have diverse structure and function and potentially are afflicted by a multiplicity of disease processes. We have designed the Mayo Clinic Gastroenterology and Hepatology Board Review course and the revised fourth edition of this book to assist both physicians-in-training who are preparing for the gastroenterology board examination and the increasing number of gastroenterologists awaiting recertification. Mayo Clinic Gastroenterology and Hepatology Board Review is not intended to replace the many more encyclopedic textbooks of gastroenterology, hepatology, pathology, endoscopy, nutrition, and radiology now available. Nor is this book intended to serve as an “update” to physicians looking for the newest advances in the science and art of gastroenterology and hepatology. Instead, the book provides a core of essential knowledge in gastroenterology, hepatology, and integral related areas of pathology, endoscopy, nutrition, and radiology. Clinical knowledge related to diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to patient management is emphasized. Case-based presentations and short board examination-type, single best answer multiple-choice questions with annotated answers are featured. This text also is intended to be used by medical students and residents during their clerkships in internal medicine and gastroenterology and by gastroenterology fellows in training. Physicians in practice should find this book to be a practical review for consolidating their knowledge in gastroenterology and hepatology.
The book is organized by subspecialty topics, including esophageal disorders, gastroduodenal disorders, small-bowel disease and nutrition, colonic disorders, pancreaticobiliary disease, liver disease, and miscellaneous disorders. Numerous color and black-and-white figures support the text. Each subspecialty section concludes with a chapter containing board examination-type, single-best answer multiple-choice questions with annotated answers. (The chapters consisting of questions and answers are not included in the index.) The faculty responsible for the book (at the time it was produced) all are Mayo Clinic gastroenterologists and hepatologists who spend the majority of their time caring for patients but have a commitment to teaching medical students, house officers, fellows, nurses, and physicians. Most of the faculty have particular interests in subspecialty areas of clinical gastroenterology and hepatology, which provides broad expertise.

We want to give special thanks to our secretaries and to Greg Gores, MD, for his ongoing enthusiasm and support for our faculty and teaching mission.
